Though properly an historical rather than a theological problem, the chronology of Paul's life is important in the field of Bible study, and is closely related to several theological questions, including that of the reliability of Scripture and the authenticity of several books accepted by the church as canonical. Its treatment is historical, but much of the freedom for specualtion indulged in by the average student of history is denied the scholar who treats this subject. Anything which cannot be established with reasonable certainty must be left an open question, and the integrity of the Scripture must remain unmolested.
